Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s News & Insights for July 19, 2023. The hot, humid days here in New England definitely have me thinking about the balance between human comfort and energy consumption. Not to get too specific, but our household electric bill has leapt up over the course of 2023 and it’s higher with the addition of air conditioning units, of course. So I’m doing my best to make up the difference elsewhere at home – relying on daylight, reducing media streaming in the background, and powering down devices not in use. More than ever, energy reduction messaging has a place in the solid-state lighting market, says International Solid-State Lighting Alliance quarterly report author Norman Bardsley. In an analysis story, writer Jenny Jones summarizes the key takeaways from the ISA report, with Bardsley commenting on the as-yet-untapped opportunities for SSL advances and further adoption, especially in developing economies.
